Vintage sewing machines

A few weeks ago, I lucked into links for an auction of several vintage sewing machines and sergers. I won the auction for this 100 year old Singer powerhouse, which means that I can once again sew leather with ease.

My Husqvarna would sew leather, but since I use it approximately 40 hours a week already, I feel better about having an alternative for anything that might put added stress on it. I was also lucky enough to snag this Pegasus overlock from the 1960s. Finally! A working overlock. That’s been on my list ever since my former studio mate moved to Florida and took hers with her.
